PSF and Meet Sasha

In the past few weeks, we've had some exciting stuff going on at our house.

Alex and I recently became involved in a non-profit, Christian organization that brings over orphaned children twice a year from Eastern Europe to share with them God's love and allow them to experience Christian family life.

(Click on the photo to visit their website.) 
We have decided to be a host family this Christmas.

Meet Sasha.

Sasha is Russian and he's 13 years old.  We don't know a whole lot about him, other than he's a funny, sweet, and active boy.  He will be joining our family in mid-December and will stay with us through mid-January.

New Horizon's is a wonderful organization.  I urge you to check out their website and our website as well for more information or for more ways to be involved.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.  James 1:27
